Rinse quinoa and drain it well. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chives and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Stir in quinoa and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until the skillet gets dry.

In a separate pan, heat vegetable broth to a simmer. Add hot broth, salt and pepper to the skillet. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 20 to 25 minutes or until quinoa is tender. Stir in cherries and pecans.
